  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The artwork for this CD was drawn in pencil on a paper bag by Katie Ferreira. The idea was a little world of musical pollution provided by yours truly... or, if you ask some perverse college kids, a subliminal phallus.

    The plan was that they look like little paper-bag cases. In really real life they are sleekly manufactured by New England CD in glossy slimline cases.

This is the earliest recorded version of this song. A more recent version can be found on City Parks After Dark.


You stood at the edge of the world and then jumped off
Swam around through space until you found the next drop off
Curiosity led you past any map, and beyond hope
No chance, no thought of ever turning back
And you’re running out of air…

You stood at the eighth wonder of the world and then thought how
No one has seen it yet, who needs to? You could settle there if you tore it down
Individualist, ignorance led to this but to say you’re intentions were
No good- not true! Not good enough, nothing is for you can’t help it
So burn it into the air
Singe the atmosphere

You swear you didn’t know?
You knew…

You know what you want to say
But you don’t say a thing
Because you don’t know what it means

You swear you didn’t know?
You knew
You think it’s all a joke?
Well ha ha ha…

Grey Milk Athens, Georgia

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
